The Olsen Way Highlights

Chances to seek out remarkable flora and fauna – from lemurs, chameleons and ylang-ylang plants in Madagascar to the Big Five on a safari tour – will be presented throughout your journey.

You can get up close to Tutankhamun’s burial ground at the Valley of the Kings, from Safaga, while the Indian leg of your journey brings opportunities to visit Goan spice and tea plantations, cook Keralan cuisine, and assist a ‘Dabbawala’ in Mumbai with their deliveries.

With four days in Cape Town there will be ample time to discover historic sites such as Signal Hill and Robben Island.

Walvis Bay is your gateway to the colossal dunes of the Namib, the world’s oldest desert, whereas Réunion Island boasts sweeping volcanic landscapes, dense forests and cascading waterfalls.

We will head off the tourist trail to explore the less-visited gems of São Tomé and Zanzibar.

While Bolette is one of the largest ships, by overall size, in our fleet, she still has capacity for less than 1,400 guests. So on board you’ll find you have more space in which to relax, in public areas such as the all-season pool and the beautiful two-tiered entertainment theatre, and enjoy a premium level of comfort – as well as our renowned personal service – in the elegant lounges, bars and dining venues.
With its warm, welcoming atmosphere and timeless style, and classic open deck spaces providing a place to fully immerse yourself in the magic of ocean cruising, Bolette is very much in keeping with what our guests have come to expect from a Fred. Olsen ship.
